In this recurring column, we highlight a few items we've run across that don't merit a full story of their own but are interesting enough to bring to your attention. This time we look at Jen Carey, Nathan Wirth, Kyle Zedaker, the Nikon ES-2 scanning adapter and the Holga.

  • In Powerful Angles, In-Between Moments, and Intimacy, Stephanie Wade presents the dramatic compositions of British photographer Jen Carey, who attributes her style to her work for the Wall Street Journal.
  • In Among Giants, Nathan Wirth visits the redwoods of Lady Bird Johnson Grove in Redwood National Park, Calif. His monochrome images are infrared, Jason Kottke says, but he also used Nik Silver Efex Pro on the Sony A7R images taken with a 70-300mm zoom.
  • Tampa Bay Buccaneers team photographer Kyle Zedaker answers the age-old question, How Do You Become a Sports Photographer? "Unlike other professions, there's no clear-cut formula to reach any specific level of professional sports," he admits.
  • Chris Nichols reviews the $140 Nikon ES-2 film scanning attachment on a Nikon D780, which (like the D850) has a special mode for it that captures (ugh) JPEGs.

More to come! Meanwhile, please support our efforts...
